“Knowing what lies on the road ahead – when you can’t see beyond the next corner – can be a serious problem for drivers,” says TomTom in a company statement. “That’s why TomTom is today announcing an innovative solution to the issue… Jam Ahead Warnings.
The company says the new safety feature gives drivers visual and audible alerts to rapidly slowing, or stationary, traffic on the road ahead, giving the driver the opportunity to brake smoothly, and in time.
Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director, TomTom, said, “We’re constantly striving to make the driving experience safer and more relaxed. TomTom Jam Ahead Warnings is a powerful example of this approach.”
At the moment, the feature is only available on Android phones.
